The Role Of The Laity In A Time Of Crisis

THE ROLE OF THE LAITY IN A TIME OF CRISIS

What Can We Do?

As the Church undergoes this period of profound crisis, many of us feel helpless as we watch a drama unfold that we can do
nothing about. But the truth is that we are not powerless. The history of the Church tells us that lay people have a role to
play in the Church’s times of turmoil. Join us for an evening of reflection on the mission of the laity in times of ecclesial crisis
and learn what you can do to cooperate with Christ’s action to purify and heal His Church.                                                     This presentation will explore:
* The power of prayer and redemptive suffering to turn the tide of crisis
* How our faith and trust can open the doors to Christ’s intervening action
* The role of forgiveness in drawing grace and light into a dark and bitter situation
* Examples from Church history of when the laity preserved the integrity of the Church while her leaders were in a state of confusion and conflict
